Ready, set, pose with your best Blue steel: It's Ben Stiller's 50th birthday! It looks like it's going to be a good year for the Zoolander star, who is gearing up for the release of Zoolander 2 in 2016. That's not a bad way to turn 50.

Stiller has always been one of Hollywood's really, really ridiculously good actors and has left an impression with his memorable (and equally hilarious) roles in films including There's Something About Mary, Meet the Parents, Along Came Polly, Starsky & Hutch, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, and Night at the Museum.

Aside from comedies, Stiller has also starred in more serious films—including 2013's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and this year's While We're Young. Now, after a 15-year hiatus from playing his Derek Zoolander character on the big screen, Stiller is set to reprise his 2001 role for a sequel alongside Owen Wilson, set to hit theaters this upcoming February.

While Stiller is well known as an actor, he's also famous for being the son of two Hollywood comedic stalwarts: Anne Meara, who sadly passed away earlier this year, and Jerry Stiller. In honor of Ben's 50th birthday, take a look back at fellow actors who also share equally famous parents.
